Keynote speakers announced for Nov. 12 Elevate event
Note: Elevate has been moved to Thursday, Nov. 12
Career coaches Valerie Burton and Dr. Nathan Mellor will be the keynote speakers for the Chamber’s 2020 Elevate program, the Chamber announced in early August.
Valorie Burton is a bestselling author, international speaker and life strategist. Burton's life-changing message has an intriguing, research-based emphasis in the pioneering field of applied positive psychology - the study of what happens when things go right with us. She teaches that resilience is a skill that can be learned - and anyone who wants to have fulfillment, high impact and success must learn it. Valorie will help attendees understand and create the building blocks of resilience so they can bounce back from setbacks, withstand pressure and maintain a positive perspective.
Dr. Nathan Mellor, is a thought leader, two-time TEDx speaker, author and President of Strata Leadership. He is recognized for his ability to connect at the heart level with a wide range of audiences. In his dynamic opening session at Elevate, you will learn about mindsets, how the brain functions through neuroplasticity, and understand the difference between having a fixed and growth mindset approach to life. After hearing his message, attendees will understand the difference between fixed and growth mindsets, gain a new perspective on life’s challenges, reframe situations, and regain control of their life.
The 2020 Elevate program will give participants the opportunity to experience world-class career coaching from the comfort of their own home or office, with two keynote sessions, the attendee’s choice of three breakout sessions, access to a virtual expo, a custom attendee profile and personalized agenda, live community chat and a digital happy hour featuring online exhibitors, 1:1 speed networking, live music and more. Breaks will highlight Oklahoma City’s arts scene and feature yoga and other movement sessions from local trainers.
